Just ask Stephon Marbury.
While Starbury remains an inactive New York Knick, he's been spending a fair amount of time in LA. His latest off-court venture -- improv -- came about as a fluke.
Enterprising YouTube enthusiast Brendan McNamara was driving in LA recently when he saw Marbury sitting at a bus stop a half a mile from his house. The aspiring filmmaker jumped into action.
McNamara tells Slam Online:
so i grabbed my camera and hustled back to where i saw him - turns out he was waiting on his car to be fixed at a shop right behind him - and asked him if he'd shoot some improv stuff with me at the bus stop.
i was a little surprised he said yes but he did and we rolled and goofed and i'm chopping 'em up into little bite-sized pieces to go up every day...
Here's the result:
One of the fundamentals of improvisation is the ability to quickly think on one's feet. Marbury has this down -- as evidenced by his strategic plug for his Starbury apparel line.
